STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of CHANCE TYLOR WARNERTHIMLAR, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED September 29, 2000 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 224636 Branch Circuit Court Family Divison LC No. 98-001087-NA CHRISTOPHER THIMLAR, Respondent-Appellant, and GAIL WARNER and QUENTON WEAGE, Respondents. Before: McDonald, P.J., and Sawyer and White, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from the family court order terminating his parental rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(g). We affirm. This case is being decided without oral argument pursuant to MCR 7.214(E). The family court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory ground for termination was established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Further, the evidence did not establish that termination of respondent-appellant’s parental rights was clearly not in the child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re Trejo Minors, ___ Mich ___; ___ NW2d ___ (No. 112528, decided 7/5/2000), slip op at 14. Thus, the family court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the child. Id. Affirmed. -1­ /s/ Gary R. McDonald /s/ David H. Sawyer /s/ Helene N. White -2­
